🕹 Editor's notes

Assetto Corsa Competizione is a game that is perfect for racing enthusiasts. This game is commonly used in e-sports events, leagues, etc.

It used to be available only for PC gamers, but you can now play it on the PS4 and Xbox One. This was made possible in 2020, but some players might find an issue with the game’s visual performance.

The Assetto Corsa Competizione has a wide selection of GT3 and GT4 equipment, and players can choose to race on 19 racetracks. You can race against AI rivals and also compete in many online events.

The races are set in strong weather conditions and excellent visuals, and you also get realistic driving feedback.


The game has a driving feature that keeps monitoring your driving skills. This rating system will also keep a check on your offline driving activities, like when you are racing practice matches.

If your stats show that you are not good enough to reach a high level, you will be unable to participate in the online races.

Assetto Corsa Competizione also allows players to choose the controls in their devices for engine map usage, start procedures, etc. If you are new to this game, you can look up online forums and gaming communities to get an idea about the workings of the settings and features.

Final Thought

If you have a powerful PC, this game will run smoothly and is one of the best driving simulators out there. Professional racers also play this game to get a feel of racing in their off-season.

You do not need a server to play in private online lobbies with your friends, making it a fantastic added feature. However, the player is not permitted to change the race settings.

Another downside to this game might be the inability for players to hit the throttle when changing the car settings in the middle of a race.
